Formal Apprdval Not Yet Given-Reeve May
: Interviews Mr. C. W. Peter*-No Definite
News As Yet From Ottawa.
On Wednesday Reovo May arranged
» consultation with Mr. 0. W. Poiers
for tho purposo of discussing tho present situation relative to tho applicn
tion by the 0. P. H. for the approval
of their route roup along the Nurlli
Shore by the minister of railways.
Interviewed by a rcprescntativ/i of
the Express, Reovo May stated in effect
as follows: I outlined to Mr. Peters all
the steps that had been luken ofliciollv
by tbo district of Nortb Vancouver relative to tbis matter citing the fact
that our positiou ua set out by myself
before the Minister of Railways it ()t-
tawu wns to the effect that tbo points
that no wished to bave safeguarded
were as follows: 1—The C. P. R. to
' begin construction within six months
and to have line iu continuous operation within two years; 2—the C, P 11.
to connect their lilies with the nurlh
and the soulh ends of Second Narrows
bridge us soon as sume is completed;<l -
other lines to be grunted running rights
over II. P. 11. trucks on the North Shore.
I further elated tbut the Minister bad
declared ilelinitely that ho "would ap
prove lbe route mop in writing upon
Ihe conditions specified. Upon 'this deliverance from Ilie Minister I lefl Ot
tana satllflcd Hint tbe whole mutter
\ was settled und hud so reported to my
' council. It was a mutter of greut
surprise to me to leurn thut allhuugli
several weeks have elnpsed Hie prom
ised ,'i,s| is ,. ot' the Minister has nol
yet beeu delivered in writing. I assured Mr. Peters thai llic ratepayers of the
district of Nortb Vuncouver want llu
('. P. R. to come into Hie district and
uik ouly a fair and ei|uiiublc buaineu
Mr. Peters iu reply acquietccd in tho
several pruvisucs which hud been mud
the ovldcnt desire upon tbo ptrt of tbe
member for this constituency to stcurt
certain cooceaaiona relative to tbe por
Bible creation of a Board of Harbor
Commissioners for tbis report. Iu tbis
conection Mr. Petert elated that he did
not aeo any good reason in tbat connection wby the route map ibould not be
approved. In the firsl place be observed tbat tbo report of Mr. Swan will
uot be in readiness until tbe last of thit
month at tbe earlictt, which means that
no definite action can be taken upon it
tbis Bcssion. If tbis report ii lo control the situation, it would appear tbat
nothing whatever could be done for a
year or more. Mr. Petera inquired,
proceeded the reeve, if it would not luit
Ibo wishes of the district to bave tueh
au indefinite postponement of operations and .1 replied emphatically tbat
it would not, but that we desired ac
tual construction to begin at'tbe earliest possible date. Mr. Peters stated
tbat such wus also the wisb of bis
compauy. Proceeding, he observed,

have to bo adjusted. As for the route

ur would show tbat the company has the
right to deviate from tho route therein
shown, a distance of one mile in cither
direction. When tbo location plau is

arch by Local Composer
A ■is'end appreciative gathering
occupied the auditorium of the Knights
of I'ythias concert hall on Wednesday
night, when lhc*iorth Vancouver Oity
Hun.I. assisted by Madam Phillips ami
Mr. Leonard Auty, rendered u program
of excellent and varied muaic.      The
concert opened with an interpretation
of Hughes' majestic work "O Canuda.'
The band bere sustained a Hue stnhii
Ity of lone and general uniformity in
time and treatment.   A capilal selection also was'Mhe "Operatic Echoes''
of Uurendeell, concluding with a for
tisimo fragment of tbe Soldiers' Chorus
from "Fuust."   Myer's concert jail/
"Olivette" wae a broad dignified composition terminating with u writs of
ffectivo staccato blasts after* rolterat
ed melody of Ihe conventional kind. The
band's treatment of Knglcinnii's "Mel
ody of Love" was dainty uud graceful,
f a little slow.    A superior tone qtt'al
ily was achieved, however, in Archer's
intermer.ro "U Hose" and in I.incko't
masterly "Glow Worm" overture. Tli ■
bend's items also included two marche-
by Sousa and HcbulU respectively. The
former's    "El    Capital"  is    widely
known"and  the  hitter's  "('barge  al
Dawn" promises to become sn.     Mr
ti. I). Schultz is a proniliicul fig""' '"
rally, being one of North Vancouver's
most venatile residents.    His march,
whicii was written in commemoration
of I'aardcberg, is punctuated    by   s
number of impired passages, and sus
tains  almost  throughout,  a, viuoroui
suggestion  of warfare—death,  defeat
courage, and  triumph all  seeming  lo
find   representation   in   Mr.   MebulU'i
composition.     While a critical finger
could doubtless point t" technical weak
neisei in the score, tbt general effect
of the march and Ibo ambitious pre
■filiation of a difficult theme ibould be
sufficient to move Nortb Vancouver to
a  feeling  of  pride.   A  growing  city
should seek fame in departments other
than prosperity and industry only. It
should pay to the world its mile of
musicians, artists and litterateurs. Mr
Brhulli is therefore, lo be thanked and
encouraged.   His ''Charge ul   Dawn
was comparable with any of Ihe slan
dard items on the program.
No petty mention is due to Hand
master R. Chance, who has worked In
defatigably to render Ibe band a frt
dit to Ibis city By a comprehensive
method of conducting, devoid of pyro
technics, h o bus extracted the licit
from each individual member, The
soloists, Mr. Jan. Varnes I bassoon | uud
Mr Carl Tossell (cornet, did admirable
uriug "Silver
Threads Among the Gold" aud ihe let
ter "The Rosary."
Several vocal items found a place on
tho program. Mr. Leonard Aulv, s
Vancouvor t,cnor, wboie voice was pltai
in g but lacked power, treated three
songs with careful taste, while Madame
Phillip* turned her nivalin lonei to
excellent account and was warmly ap
plauded. Hearty encores awaited the
North Vancouver Mole Quartette, who
supplied interesting harmonics, ranging
from tbo foliue to tho amorout.
Tboie who bad not before heard tbt
City Band are uow its well wishers.
Wednoiday nigbt'i com ert proved lhal
the baton it in tbe right hand, thai the
right men arc in Ihe bund, and that thl
band'i progross is lo tbe right direction

Contrary to lbc usual practice lbc Assessment Notices for
1912 have been sent lo the registered owners of property
according lo lbc Land Registry records.
Up to the present, purchasers bave been in the habit of
notifying the cily authorities that lbc property bad changed hands
so lbat notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration of owners bas heretofore been deemed
sufficient for cily purposes, but owing lo a recent decision lbc
cily council is advised by its solicitors lo recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of lhe Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
lhe North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
hu received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which il has told and which has since changed hands Iwo or three
The Company, therefore, desires lo notify persons who have
purchased from il that they should lake steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent lo them so that they may be
come aware of the value at which they arc being assessed and
pay taxes as they fall due.

The Liberal candidates for the city
of Vancouver in their public min
uiiei'H are persistently declaring that
the party is confining Its efforts and
expectations atrictly to the croatiou of
au opposition in tho provincial houso.
At their campaign meeting lu Fair-
view Wednesday ovening each of the
candidates voiced this appeal in Ills
own way and ono of them declared
that he was satisfied that :.' Icust two
I,ilu mis wuuld lie returned from Vancouver.
It is .mi;. Ji lo understand just how
the opponent! of the government have
worked this prulilcin nut In a satisfae
tory solution frum a public point uf
view. They are sayinu to lhe country
in effect "wo acknowledge that thorn
is no prospect of uur being alilu to carry
the country, hut wu liupu that a sufli
clanl number of voters whu really favur
tbe government, will abandon thu gov
eminent ami vote fur our candidates
iu order lu enable us In elect a capable
opposition in lhe Hnuse."
Taking the cily uf Vancuuver as an
example, huw is the unsophisticated
Conservative voter who wishes lo ac-
commodate Hie Liberals in their forlorn
state, to tell which Conservative candidates lu reject and which Liberal
s iiii.ii.i.ii. ■ tu favor iu ordor to work
Ibis bright scheme of the government
opponent! Iliruugh uu a basis that
will afford uiiqueetiinable control uf
lbe precise number of candidate!wbicb
il is 11 "lii that each side sbuubl bave!
To be explicit, suppose tlyiso vory ac
s minim.luting voters iu the Conservative
ruuki were to favur tbu election of
tbree Couiervative members and twu
Liberal members fur Vancouver, what
assurance could Ihey possibly have thut
Ibey wuulil uut succeed as a result of
their split bulbil in reversing the dosir-
l"i    -.ills, sl.si Ili
The same features must present
tbenitelies with regard to tbo respective
conatituenciei thruiigliuut' tbe province.
Upon wliul lsii;si- is the matter tu be so
arranged, tbat lbe Couiervative voters
in one eutistituency whu decide to ob
ligu their Liberal friends by deliberately defeating lhe nominee of their own
party muy be absulutely poiitive that
the Conservative! of ulher conititucn
cies, will nol prove similarly susceptible
tu tbe persuasive influence of the op-
puiients uf lhe government, with the
reiult lhat Hie wliule effect may bo to
return un opposition somewhat stronger
numerically tbau was anticipated, even
tu lbe extent of a pussiblu change uf
places between the uew opposition ami
lbe present govcrnlncgli Of court*, nu
une wuuld presume tu m .inni.(.- tliat
any such ulterior motive lurks in the
mn,.Is uf the Liberal campaigners, in
ie1..nn. .i.y this jpecloui plea for a cap
able oppoiition, bul Ibere js nu very
latiefaetory ground nevertheloit, fnr
concluding lhat they wuuld decline to
accept the advantages of the situation
were iuch tu result.
Everything coniidered, il is probable
tbat tlte proUilatleni uf the Liberal
candidate! lu this particular woull
bave been Kuiuewhat mure convincing to
the ordinary mind had Ihey deinunitrat
ed the exactness of their statement' by
placing iu the field, the precise number of cauilidulcs  which  Ihey  would

ln placing Hon. F. L. Carter-Cotton
again in the field as their candidate for
the provincial legislature, the Comer
minI- party is presenting to the elect
ure of Hicbmnnd Killing an opportunity
to retain ai a representative
at Victoria, a member whoso proa-
tige in the House Is not excelled by
that of any supporter of the govern
ment, and that is equalled by very few.
Mr. Cotton is one of tbe oldest remaining member! of the provincial leg-
iilaturo, having held a aoat In tbe
Mouse continuously for approximately
twenty five yuan. During that time be
has passed through all the gradation!
of ollice frum private member to leader
of tho government, having been bead
of the I'oiioii lo'inliii iisiiiiiins.il.'ii.sn in
ItUIH. During sll the frequent changes
whicii took place through that period
of iti hiitory wheu British Columbia
waa unfortunately noted for iti unstable governmental condition!, Mr.
Cotton was ut all times one of the fore
most figures in tlie hnuse and his ripe
experience and acknowledged ability
itood tbe province in goud itead under
thuse trying condition!. Since the Inauguration uf parly guvernment in lllll.'l
Mr. Cotton has beeu a prumiuent and
i ml nni i ml member uf the McBride administration, having held cabinet posi-
tion until a shurt time ago when he vol
untarily resigned the position of preiident of the council, in urder to facilitate reorganization. Although nut at
the present time a member nf the cab-
iuet, Mr. Cotton stands high in the
counsel! of the government and he ii
at the saute time recognized ai one of
the ablcBt and moit influential membera
of Ihe legislature.
Mr. Cotton has represented Bichmond
riding at Victoria ever since that cou
itituency wai created as at present
■ -HI..-.I ii in .--I and inasmuch ai the cull-
stituency will duuhtless be divided lie
fure auuther election, hii election ou the
HHIIi iust will confer upon bim the dia
Unction uf having held the number
ship for the riding during the entire
course of ils existence.
Mr. Cotton ii a member who at all
I lilies   exercises   U III, III'III   Hire   OM'l   tlie
requirement! of hii conititucucy aud
who hai proven mcceiiful to an ex-
optional degree in securing favorable
action upou the part uf the guvernment
wilh reference tu thoae requests for
"i. i-i' iniiini which he hai made from
im'e'To tffctysml'.jhel/'O^ljii conilil-
Hem.". In thii regard it may bu men-
lionml thai tliruugh Mr. Cotton'a inii ruinentnlity the guvernment, at the
lust session iucreaseil tho subsidy for
Second Narurwi bridge to ♦400,000 aud

district in the cunitruclioii uf the new

Number Two had itood (or some timo

ad moved toward the nine end of

and trying the tub to licertaln

There was a light In. the room.
Nor was this all. Some person was
In tbe room, loo, sud by the silhouette
on tbe bllml I could see that he wu
Industriously applying hlniBelf to some
task, tho nailice of which I could not
determine. Tlio longer I watched the
BliadoW on lhe blind, the' more pus-
■• lnl I grew. I could Imagine no occupation thul would account for such
singular actions.
The shsdow was a msn's; I could
distinguish Ihut much, llu uppiared

It would be Impossible to siy how
long I itood there, tho snow nesrly to
my knees, fascinated by the remarkable antics of that shadow. Then of

less, sb If startled by some uuetpect-

Well, perhaps within tbe noxt
lecond he knew .whit hid alarmed

ihuilww flushed away the bllml. Then
my sculp tingled and lhe blood seem-
id to freeze In my veins.
From wllhln Iho room thorc came
t most unearthly cry. It waa weird,
terrifying, utterly unlike anything I
bad ever heard—aave once. Por It
wu a repltltlon of tbe wild, Inhuman
note tbat had thrilled me when I first
dashed open Ihe bath ronm door tbo
previous nigh I.
Tbe terrible cry wu not immediately repeated, but for a while tbe utmost
confusion prevailed wltbln. I could
bear furniture knocked end slammed
about, u tumult of stamping scraping tut, and mice for tbo briefest
moment' another shadow was pro
Jected upon lhe blind.
It wu a hideous, squat, dwarfleh
Ibadow. Two long gorilla-like arms
wire upraised In sn abandonment of
fury. Then came tbat awful, bloodcurdling   sn i 'u iii    agsln,   and    the
with weeping. The poor girl pressed
my bind when I helped ber into tba
carriage- -clung to It despairingly, to
be euot—and the tears again rushed
to her eyes.
"Thii Ii killing mil" ibe moaned.
"Oh, It III It Ul I can't Hand tt

"Courage, Mlu Fluitti," I under
toned isiuulvely. "Everything li
working for the best, believe me."
Ah, but wu it? J could not uy

drove away, two ud, harassed women.
Touching again upon Wednesday

Or possibly Mn. Fluette. In anticipation of Ihe request tbat ibe And an
eicuse lo meet me it tbe earliest poi-
slhlo moment, for I wu ill Impitlence
to heir her report.
But Qenevleve hid anticipated alio.
Sbe arrived armed wltb a commission
from Die Ohio cousin, tbe performance
of which would brook no delay. Bo
I bad a mlnule alone wltb ber downtown. Bhe had beeu thoughtful
enough to record a detailed statement
of her Investigations; It llu before mi

Wooers were many, but favors were
few ind grudgingly bestowed; end In
time all suitors withdrew, leaving the
Aeld clear lo Alfred Fluette and Fells
The I'onpera and tbe Kindles represented the wealth and aristocracy
of the community, while Fells Page
waa a poor, struggling young man
whose only advantagos and proapecti
for the future lay In bli Indomitable
pluck and I resolution tint was ready
to rldo roughshod over all opposition.
And Clara favored tbe poor- young
man. He went forth from Merton resolved o wrest a fortune from the
world wid lay It at bis swecthesrt'a

Alas, though, for the fiery Felix;
she wss not of a very resolute character, being easily Influenced by ber
sterner parents, whose pstrlcau eyes
looked askance upon the presumptuous lover's claims. Besides, Felix wss
ubsent-supposedly engsged In bis
laudable enterprise of wresting u fortune from the world—wnlle Alfred,
handsome, polished of manner, patient
and perslslenily attentive, was ever at
be elbow.
Then, too, there wu Mlsi Clara's
family, to the last one of tbem espousing Alfred's cause. Iu the end

At any rate, after one or two letters

girl had been tactful enough to ei
chew a heavy veil end sombre upparcl,
It wu plain to be seen that the event
was ilmoBt too greal an ordeal for

The snow muffled my tread, snd he

Hearing Adjourned Until April 31th
The Board of Licensing Commission

met in tho eity hall on Wednesday
iii'toriioon, Two applications were msde
(or buttling licenses, the applicants
luring Tom Booth, whose premises would
be eituated on lot 7, block 1(8, I), h
ill, md J. B. Teevens, whose venue
of business would be 1st street east,
lot 7, block 168, I), h. tli. Mr. Teeveus
was represented by Mr. 11. I), liuggles.
aud Mr. Booth by Mr. 8. 1). BcliulU,
while Mr. 0. N. Harvey sppeared in
tbe prohibitionist inlerest.
Prior to the hearing of the applies
linns eity clerk Shepherd resd u letter
from Professor B. E. Maeiisghten stating that in the opinion of a number of
citizens the i|uestion in hand was one
v. in.'li .ni."In to be submitted to tbe
ratepayers. Mr. Maenaghten persou
ally understood that t number ef rale
payers were anxious that the Norwegian system should be given a trial
in North Vaneouver. The writer was
thereforo willing to pay the costs nf
a plebiscite worded as follows: "In
the event of a bottle licence granted in
North Vancouver would you prefer (1)
tbet it shoulil be grunted te u |'ompaiiy
devoting all profits (above 6 per cent,
for interest in thir capital investment)
to objects of public utility not supported by the rales."
It was fouml, on proceeding with the
applications, that Mr. Booth's fell short
of technical accuracy ou u number of
points. He hail not secured for in
stance the required number of signut
ures. Mr. Teeverj'l application was ue
cording to the clerk, similarly imperfect, there being a doubt ubuut cerium
property ownership.
These differences however, were not
fully gone into when Aid. Biss stated
Iiis emphatic opinion Ibat, since the
time was ripe and the city had reached
Ihe necessary stage of development, the
ratepayers themselves should shoulder
Ihe responsibility. He favored the
submission of a plebiscite to the people
during the next lew weeks for the pul
pose of getting uu expression of opili
iuu us lo whether Ihey wished a bottle
liquor licence, if grunted ul all, should
be controlled by an individual or rui
by u compauy according to the Gothenburg ur Norwegian system as suggested
by Professor ILNaghteu.
Mr. ,M. Ki'ii/ic was iu accord with thu
view of Aid. Biss.
Ou a motion, duly seconded, aud ear
ned, therefore, it wus decided to ud
jouru the session until April lUtb, a
